Aside from being left at the El Chaparral border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, which is an area he was unfamiliar with, he was said to dread the idea of returning to his hometown of Sinaloa.
Guadalupe Olivas Valencia is thought to have jumped from a bridge at the border on Tuesday morning after being deported for the third time.
He jumped off a bridge just yards from El Chaparral, the main border crossing point between the United States city of San Diego and Tijuana in Mexico.
At the time of his fall, the illegal immigrant suffered a concussion and died of a heart attack at the point of impact.
According to local media, he was found next to a plastic bag like those used by USA border patrol to put migrants belongings in.
A report via the Independent told of a friend saying that Valencia was 'anxious' after being pushed to a region where 'he knew nobody'.
